Corona Virus Wheel
22nd January 2022
One of the best vantage points on the hills surrounding Skipton is Pinhaw Beacon which you can easily walk to after driving to the carpark located on the tops road between Carleton and Colne.
From the carpark alone, the views across the Yorkshire Dales are outstanding, so even if walking is not your thing, drive there and enjoy the panoramic vista.
In tribute to the National Health Service and in memory of those who have lost their lives due to Covid 19, a metallic wheel showing the names of the peaks in the distance. It is a wonderful memorial and also enlightening discovery of the hills you can see in the distance. The peaks include Pendle Hill, Whernside & even Malham Cove. Of course, the view is dependent on the Yorkshire weather.
It takes less about 10 minutes to drive from the holiday cottage to the car park and about 15 minutes to walk up to the top of Pinhaw.
